The 'Lets Play' range of minis provides support, guidance and ideas for all practitioners working within early years settings. The mini collection clarifies the importance of providing high quality environments and activities that are planned effectively and are age appropriate.
The writing mini enables teachers and practitioners to:
- Ensure a 'literacy rich' environment where teachers and practitioners are highly effective role models of writing development.
- Plan for daily activities, experiences and opportunities that will support the development of writing for all groups of children including boys, girls and reluctant writers.
- Consider the importance of children developing the physical skills and hand eye co-ordination that enable them to write and to plan activities to support this physical development.
- Look at each play area and how literacy can be introduced and developed.
